### Example: Find factors of 242 in pair

Factor Pair Pair Factorization
1 and 242 1 x 242 = 242
2 and 121 2 x 121 = 242
11 and 22 11 x 22 = 242

Since the product of two negative numbers gives a positive number, the product of the negative values of both the numbers in a pair factor will also give 242. They are called negative pair factors.

Hence, the negative pairs of 242 would be ( -1 , -242 ) .

#### How do you define factor pairs of a number?

A factor pair of a number can be defined as the combination of two factors in such a way that when multiplied together produce the number itself. Every natural number is a product of atleast one factor pair. Eg- Factors of 242 are 1 , 2 , 11 , 22 , 121 , 242. So, factors of 242 in pair are (1,242), (2,121), (11,22).

#### How do you explain factors?

In mathematics, a factor is a number or also it can be an algebraic expression that divides another number or any expression completely and that too without leaving any remainder. A factor of a number can be positive or negative.

#### Properties of Factors

• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 242 is a factor of itself.
• Every number other than 1 has at least two factors, namely the number itself and 1.
• Every factor of a number is an exact divisor of that number, example 1, 2, 11, 22, 121, 242 are exact divisors of 242.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 242.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 242 x 0 = 0.

#### Steps to find Factors of 242

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 242 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 121 (half of 242). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
242 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
242 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
242 ÷ 11 : Remainder = 0
242 ÷ 22 : Remainder = 0
242 ÷ 121 : Remainder = 0
242 ÷ 242 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 242 are 1, 2, 11, 22, 121, and 242

• Is 242 a composite number?

• Write five multiples of 242.

Five multiples of 242 are 484, 726, 968, 1210, 1452.

• Write all odd factors of 242?

The factors of 242 are 1, 2, 11, 22, 121, 242.
Odd factors of 242 are 1 , 11 , 121.
